CAMP WEEK THREE

News with Noah

Hunter F., a free swimmer at camp, loves to do freestyle but it’s not his best stroke. He says he is best at breast stroke. Shocker right? The nice counselor Buddy Brewer has worked at Stone Ridge Summer Campus since 2018. He teaches inner tube water polo and he is a lifeguard for free swim.

Gator Games

           Yesterday (July Fifth 2022) we interviewed multiple classes in the Stone Ridge Summer Camp. First we visited at my request Gator Games which had Sofie G as head counselor. She relayed to me the activities that the children in Gator Games did such as Soccer (My favorite sport), Dodgeball, Hockey, Basketball, Capture the Flag and SPUD. At first I was ignorant of what SPUD was, but Sofie explained that that SPUD was “ a game that Dave Gordon invented using a kickball.” I curiously inquired who was Gator Games’s most talented soccer player and she replied that Anna Larkin was. Most popular Gator Games are dodgeball and SPUD. Seems like these kids are having a blast.

On Tuesday the Gator Gazette visited cooking with Tiny Chefs. It smells SO good in their kitchen. I saw them making pumpkin pancakes. You get to learn how to properly use a knife. It seems really fun in cooking with Tiny Chefs.

TOTALLY TRENDING

My sister is in Totally Trendy Crafts but today your boy Noah is telling you what’s trending. Well it's my sisters words. I asked her what her favorite craft was and she said making a clay pineapple and I asked her who is your favorite  favorite counselor and she said  Emma. Well,  that’s it for today. Stay tuned for more Noah's News!

CARTOON CLASS

 After  interviewing Trendy Crafts with Gator Gazette, we visited Cartooning, whose head counselor was my teacher during the second period at the camp.  Seeing that we had entered, one of the students presented me with a story he imagined. Then we interviewed the counselor asking her what she taught her students. She replied that she teaches her kids to convey feelings with eyebrow shapes, to create characters and how to use dialogue boxes. Cartooning looks like a lot of fun! ~Marcus

CAMP WEEK FOUR

MINI GATORS 4'S

Today we visited mini gator 4’s and I went in to interview them.  They were asked what their favorite things to do are and here are the answers: multiple people said everything which was really nice to hear and others answered with “ water play “ which is a time where they can go outside and play in the sprinkler (from what I remember about being a mini.) Multiple other people said making bracelets and doing crafts. This week is the outer space theme so all the crafts were based off of outer space. As of Tuesday the kids have made rocket ships and aliens. Sounds like it’s going to be a fun week in mini gators! ~Norah

ROCKET SCIENCE--BLAST OFF!

We went to Rocket Science and watched them pump air into a rocket and into the sky. They had different angles to launch the rocket on. The higher the angle number, the higher it would go. I interviewed Carrie and she said she was in Rocket Science because it sounded fun. She likes how they learned about rockets. Watch the video! ~ Elinor

Look what this camper created with a broken arm!

Diving is fun ! 

In diving you learn how to dive in different ways ! 

You jump off the diving board and dive like Coach Bob.

Coach Bob is a very nice coach .

I like diving because it is fun and because you go deeper in the water .

I think more boys should do diving because diving is for everyone . ~ Louis

MINI GATOR 6'S

If you’re a mini gator you’ll have fun! Campers in mini gators say they do lots of crafts. Campers favorite things to make are playing with pearl beads and using playdough. They also love to go swimming.    ~Anna     

TINY CHEFS

Today in Tiny Chefs they made whoopie pies and veggie soup. I asked Carrera about the class and this is what she said, “ My favorite thing that I’ve made is the whoopie pie and the things I’ve made so far are chocolate chip cookies, whoopie pies, and corn dogs.” when asked where she will use the skills Carrera answered with “at a job maybe or when I’m baking in my house.” Sounds like Carrera enjoyed Tiny Chefs and I think the other chefs did too!  We did a poll to see what the favorites were in Tiny Chefs and multiple people agreed with Carrera saying whoopie pies were the best. Sounds tasty! ~Norah

 

HIP HOP DANCE!

The children that are in hip hop love to dance! Like me! In hip hop you have to be moody, sassy, and full of emotion. You have to feel the beat so that your dance moves make sense with the song. Dance is like a sport, you have to be a team player with your body. You need to know your limits. Dance can be many things and that’s what you will learn if you do hip hop. Dance can be anything you desire. It can be waving your hands and feet around or doing anything with your body. If you like dancing or are adventurous with exploring new things, and if you haven’t ever done dance or formal dance lessons hip hop is just the right thing to explore. Do hip hop! Sign up now! ~ Harper

GATOR GAMES

Gator  Games is so fun !!!!!

You play all sorts of games like dodgeball and soccer . 

You would like it if you are an active person.

You get to listen to music!

A lot of boys and girls are in Gator Games and really having a great time! ~Louis

TOTALLY TRENDING CRAFTS

TOTALLY TRENDY CRAFTS

Today we visited Totally Trendy Crafts and interviewed them. I asked what they were making and they said they were making Pom Pom Picture Frames. Pom Pom Picture Frames are a frame and then you decorate around it with Pom Poms. They also made Water Bottle Stickers and a Flamingo Picture. Looks like they are going to be making some fun crafts this week!!! ~Himani

FUN WITH PICKLE BALL!

I take the Pickle Ball class at camp and it’s really fun! We get to practice and play games at the same time! Some of the games we play are Around the World, Jailbreak and Kings and Queens. My favorite is probably Around the World. Most  people in Pickle Ball like Jailbreak the best though. I think you should try playing Pickle Ball! 😄🤩 ~ Himani

STRINGS AND THINGS

Today we went to Strings & Things. There are different things you can look at that are weaved, sewed and knitted. There are also a lot of different materials you can use to make things and you get to choose what you make! We asked Bess what she made and she said “I made a hat.” We also asked her why she likes Strings & Things and she said “Because I make things here that I can’t make at home.” We asked Molly what she made and she said “I made a rubber band ball and I am crocheting.” I think everyone is enjoying Strings & Things!               ~Himani 😄

LEGOS, LOGS AND LINKS!

  Legos, Logs and Links is all about creating all sorts of legos figures.

You can create anything--cars, a house , a beach--anything, really 😲!  

You can build with partners! 

My favorite part of legos is at the end when you get to break all of the legos apart !!!!! ~ Louis
